None of these really sound like a Dovecot problem. Dovecot doesn't do
any kind of character set decoding/translation/anything really when
sending messages to clients. That's only done in the SEARCH command
(which OE never uses anyway).
If this is somehow related to Dovecot, it's because of ENVELOPE and/or
BODY/BODYSTRUCTURE replies. I don't know if OE uses these. It might be
helpful to look at the IMAP traffic using e.g. rawlog

You also didn't mention what Dovecot version you're using.
